Fantasy football advice, Week 4: Start Peyton, sit Eli Manning

A look at who you should start or sit in Week 4

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

It is Sunday again, which means you need to make sure you have your fantasy team lineup set. Who should you start and who should you sit?

Here is some to consider:

Start Peyton Manning, QB:

He is absolutely on fire right now. He has 12 touchdown passes in three games. The Eagles are allowing over 67 percent of opponents' passes to be completed and have allowed five touchdown passes.

Sit Mike Glennon, QB:

While the Cardinals have been giving up passing yards like crazy, do not jump on the rookie yet. He completed only 47 percent of his passes in the preseason against second string players.

Start Andrew Luck, QB:

He is playing the Jaguars, who are just awful. Luck is going to have a field day.

Sit Eli Manning, QB:

The Chiefs have only allowed two passing touchdowns and have intercepted four passes. Manning has thrown eight interceptions. KC also plays well at home. Not a good matchup.

Start Darren McFadden, RB:

McFadden will be running against the porous Redskins defense, who allow 155 yards rushing a game and have given up four rushing TDs.

Start Jamaal Charles, RB:

He faces the New York Giants, who have given up almost 130 rushing yards a game and four rushing touchdowns.

Sit Chris Johnson, RB:

The Jets defense is once again stout against the run. They are sixth best, allowing less than 80 yards a game. Opponents have one rushing touchdown in three games.

Start Reggie Wayne, WR:

If you are going to start Luck, you better double dip and go with his favorite target in Wayne.

Sit Larry Fitzgerald, WR:

The Cardinals play a tough Tampa defense, but more importantly, Fitz will be matched up with Darrelle Revis. It likely will not be a big day.
